Photobucket Pray for Our Governor...

Mike and I have felt like we need to be praying for all the candidates but especially for the Palin family. I know there is controversy about whether Gov. Sarah should be a candidate etc.

I know I prayed for a candidate that would be a social and fiscal conservative and would fear God. I believe God answered. We've also believed that because she IS a Christian there will be much spiritual warfare. I'm ashamed that I've not been praying for ALL the candidates (though I am now). I feel a special need to be praying for this Christian woman who is trying to follow God's path for her.....for the protection of her family, her marriage, her reputation...... I've told others that I sensed in interviews that Gov. Palin felt a destiny to be involved in politics and that God was leading her to these positions (mayor, governor).....I think that comes across in the following clip.

This link was sent to me. It is a 15 min clip which shows Gov. Palin addressing her home church - Wasilla Assembly of God. She's actually addressing the Master's Commission (which we thought cool because of the girls.) This is fairly recent (she mentions Trig's birth). In hindsight it's amazing to see what appears to be the hand of God moving on this one woman. Whether you agree with the Pentecostal movement or not - it's apparent to me that her faith in Jesus is real...and she's very capable of articulating it in a public forum.

BTW - after hearing how OLD 44 is it has been fun to hear all say how YOUNG it is this past week. ::snort::

You know, the older my parents get, the younger that particular age seems. 40 is absolutely youthful! :) (And 60 is just middle age.)

Thank you so much for the link to Sarah Palin's talk...What a blessing and a much-needed encouragement she is...I had *heard* she was a believer, but it is very powerful to hear it from her...
Only by His Grace!

Any sphere of knowledge you're engaged in - every aspect of your workday world -- should be to you as a believer a source of wonder and worship and should be used as a means of glorifying God.

Praying right along with y'all. From what we can tell, she's fabulous. And very normal.

And yes. This will all be about spiritual warfare.

Thank you for posting the link. No matter which way the elections go, it is wonderful to see a true woman of God on the ticket.
